Fila Buster

June 26, 2012
approx. 40 minutes
“This is What I Want: National Queer Arts Performance Festival,” curated by Anna Martine Whitehead at SOMArts, San Francisco, CA

Fila Buster is a transhistorical figure and concept created from a desire to prod postmodern dance’s notion of the neutral body and translate choreographic material into a living, breathing subjectivity. The performance utilized Steve Paxton’s small dance as well as a rapid-fire speech that called her body into existence. The performance space was shared with Rafa Esparza creating opportunity for our two works to overlap.
